Very cool, I was just birding out there a couple weeks ago. Love the gopher snake passing through the background!

Thanks for sharing the story with the cool photos Craig!

I'm jealous of everyone who got to witness the combat dance. I've been out quite a bit lately hoping to catch some combat action on video. No luck yet...

I started birding and herping there in the 1980s. I have seen C. helleri and most other common snakes and lizards there (No beach boas though).
It is excellent in spring, fall, and winter. Lots to see there, and you can fish in a few places.
